Should I enable "Pulldown Detection" in ATI Catalyst Control Center for Windows Media Center Tuner?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I did some searches and couldn't find much info on this subject. I assume this setting is for reverse telecine but am not sure if I should enable it or leave it off and let my TV (Samsung PN64D8000) handle the duty by sending it an 1080i signal to engage Film Mode. Other than that I have "Use Video Player Settings" selected vs "Use AMD Settings" under "Basic Video Color". I'm using the "Vector Adaptive" Deinterlacing Mode and have no other video options checked including "Enable Acceleration". Under the "Gaming Options" I have left all settings on default (3D Settings, Anti-Aliasing, Anti-Aliasing Method, Anisotropic Filtering) Any suggestions are greatly appreciated, thanks!

Thanks for your suggestion Andy! So the graphics card should definitely do a better job with reverse telecine?

Very basic settings (in CCC 13.4) are:

Color:
Basic Video Color: Select "Use Video Player Settings"
Advanced Video Color: Uncheck all (you may need to check "Dynamic Range" to get proper black and while levels in PowerDVD etc.)

Qualtiy:
Deinterlacing: Check both.
Uncheck all the others.

Without "Pulldown Detection", a telecined content may be treated as an interlaced content, hence you may see wrong effects.

Thanks for chiming in renethx! When you say "check both" for deinterlacing do you mean to check automatic deinterlacing and 4:3 pulldown? Thanks again!

I was under the impression that I could have the TV handle the pulldown detection by leaving it off on the computer and sending it an interlaced signal thus engaging the film mode. The question then was if the TV or graphics card would do a better job with the process. Of course I should test and see what looks better to me but I'm always curious to get the general consensus. Sorry I missed this part of your post previously!

Yes, you can send interlaced signals and leave deiterlacing / IVTC to TV by setting the desktop refresh rate to "29Hz".

Thanks again renethx! It ends up that having the TV handle the pulldown with my set up produces much better results. When enabled on the graphic card SD content suffers from a lot of jaggies. I should have simply compared the two to start out with (doh!) I just assumed the difference would be much more subtle to the point I would just feel better thinking I made the selection that was supposed to be best, ha! Thanks again!
